Top definition
The term used to describe or refer to a moment (in a film, TV program or even life) that acts as a complication of sorts. That is, a point when the "plot thickens".

Derived from the use of cornflour as a thickening agent when making sauce/gravy/etc. Hence the term, 'Cornflour Moment'.
You're watching Alias and find out 'The man' is really Sydney's mother.

You say, to be smart-assy:
"And that, ladies and gentlemen, was what we like to call a Cornflour Moment.."

Or, more simply:
"Woah! Dude! Cornflour Moment!"
